The multiplayer of the game tends to be where the majority of fun can be seen. While single player is a worthwhile en-devour in the game, it just can not stand up against playing with real people. The included multiplayer has plenty of competitive maps as well as a section of co-op maps that are similar to the campaign mode (though not as plentiful). See More
Some of the missions in the game can require the player to keep track of up to 135 units at once, on three different fronts at that , which can be difficult to manage. While not completely unmanageable, this is something to consider for those that want something a bit more simplistic out of their RTS. See More
Company of Heroes 2 is an RTS game that focuses more on smart decision making of micro unit control over macro control and actions per minute. This allows for a more deep strategy to the game as user will need to think aggressively and quickly. Strategy plays a big part as units can utilize cover with buildings as well as vehicles. The action on screen can often be slow which also allows for more micro management and planned out attacks. See More
When facing off against units or vehicles that use flame weapons, the users troops can be killed a little too quickly. being that the weapons can often come out of nowhere, it can be frustrating as the level will most likely need to be replayed with the knowledge that flame weapons will be coming up.

While not a huge improvement over the first game in the series (Company of Heroes), the graphics to be found in CoH2 are still quite astounding for an RTS. Being that the genre tends to have many moving parts in any given level, the graphics tend to take a backseat to gameplay, but CoH 2 decided to offer better graphics than most in a very rich and detailed environment as well as troops. There will be plenty of realistic explosions to watch, as well as smoke after the fact that looks quite real. The animations to be found are also quite good, troops run as you would expect real people to run, vehicles move exactly as expected as well. Just about anything in the graphics department for this game stands out with a ton of polish. See More
While DLC has the potential to introduce imbalance, with purchased items that give advantage, so far CoH 2 has not had this issue. What it does offer through DLC is new campaigns and features such as Twitch support. This allows for more to be added to the game to do and see, which keeps players that enjoy the game coming back when purchasing these items. Other things such as cosmetics can also be purchased through DLC (really micro-transactions), which do not impact gameplay at all but offer a way to individualize oneself from the masses. See More
With the precision needed for shooting in the game as well as needing to learn the ins and outs of the skillful mechanics it may take a good while before one can get fully comfortable with the game, which may frustrate some as there will be a time commitment. See More
PlanetSide 2 has pay to win mechanics meant to coerce players into paying for equipment to avoid the extremely long grind it takes to earn anything in game. A brand new player with a deep wallet can customize their gear to their prefered playstyle giving them an advantage over those that opt not to pay. See More
Users can select where they want to respawn after death. There are even vehicles that provide new spawn points on the map that players can drive and leave. This creates a great element of strategy on where to place spawn points when attacking certain targets. See More
While killing enemies, the camera will slow down as the bullet crosses the map, outlining the target's skeleton and internal organs in an X-Ray view to show you exactly how the shot goes through them. Lining up the perfect sniper shot and watching as the bullet crosses the map and crushes through the enemy's skeleton and flesh is a visceral experience. The movement of the camera as it zooms in and captures the spattering blood and cracking bones is the most unique part of the gameplay. Getting to see that level of detail reinforces the importance of every shot, making each bullet more valuable. See More
Sometimes the enemy AI is smart, calling in backup to surround you once you're spotted, or making clever sweeps throughout your last known location to find you. But other times, the enemy will stare right at you from only a few feet away, or remain knelt behind cover without noticing you dispatching other units right next to them. See More
Sniper Elite 4 puts you in large, open sandbox levels with the freedom to achieve your objective in any way you want. If you're tasked with dispatching enemy units on the map, you can choose to take out the commander first to confuse everyone and lower their morale, or you can take everyone out one by one as you locate them. You can shoot at explosive barrels to eliminate a group of enemies all at once, aim for the engine of a vehicle for an ever bigger explosion, or go in guns blazing without stealth or sniper rifles.

Sniper Elite 4 doesn't do much with its story beyond telling you where to go in order to kill more Nazis. The plot doesn't try to make any commentary on the necessity of war, and it doesn't do enough with groups like the Italian Resistance or the mafia. You won't find anything new or groundbreaking here with the writing or narrative. See More
Taking your time to sneak up to a vantage point and line up your sniper scope with the enemy's head pays off in Sniper Elite 4. Avoiding detection and sticking to high points will be your best bet for stealth gameplay, with options to climb up buildings or sneak through shrubbery or behind walls to get to where you need to be. If you're spotted, you can pull out a handgun and dispatch enemies that way, but it's not as efficient as sniping enemies from a safe distance and remaining undetected. See More
Your starter gear will likely stay with you throughout the entire game, as new guns you receive don't have too many boosts in power or precision. At most, you may choose another gun because of the way it looks, such as a camoflauge skin or an all-black rifle instead. See More
There are four difficulty levels: Cadet, Marksman, Sniper Elite, and Authentic, with the real challenges and unique changes starting at Sniper Elite. At this setting, there's no aim assist, and shots that are longer than 300 meters are much harder to pull off due to realistic ballistics in each sniper rifle. The Authentic difficulty ramps things up even more, with no aim assist and no UI elements on the interface. See More
Black Ops 3 has a new addition of character powers that come in a basic range of melee, ranged and mind control. Each gives a certain perk that can be used in the game which allows for a few different play-styles (depending on ones weapon load-out). This way players can feel as though their character is a little more unique to them due to how one will play with what they have chosen to use. See More
The story mode of the game is quite short at 6 hours, which means there is little time for much character development. While the overall story is interesting and brings up some themes not often found in game, by the time the game starts trying to get a pay off with certain characters, there has been little in the way of making the player chare about their conclusion or outcome, which can be frustrating to not be very invested in the games story. See More
There is no tutorial in the game and each mission the player is placed on the weaker side of the fight. This makes for a game that is not only difficult to know what to do but also really hard in each mission, which can lead to a lot of frustration, even for seasoned RTS players. See More
